Motel CCTV captures man’s two killers
Posted on

Creepy! The family of the deceased, Don Relova, is asking people to help identify the two suspects captured on a motel’s CCTV camera. Watch the video and see the faces of a young man and woman who were the last two people seen leaving the room of the murder victim.
One wonders what a 69-year-old broker would be doing in a motel at 4 in the afternoon, followed by a couple that looks like they checked in a room on the same floor.
The young woman enters the broker’s room (an escort?), followed an hour later by her companion who changes into a white T-shirt.
Both leave the broker’s room minutes later with the man having changed into a black T-shirt.
The victim’s body was found six hours later.

Broker found dead in motel room

Cops looking for mystery woman, cohort

Was it a case of robbery or revenge?
A 69-year-old real estate broker was found dead inside a motel room in Mandaluyong City before midnight on Monday.
According to the police, Don Relova, a resident of Sta. Ana, Manila, was poisoned and struck on the head with a hard object.
His body was found inside the Sogo Hotel on Kalentong Street in Barangay Pag-asa.
All his valuables, however, were missing, including his jewelry, cell phone and a wallet containing cash and identification cards.
Chief Insp. Jaime Masilang, head of the Mandaluyong police investigation unit, said the victim checked in by himself at 4:49 p.m. on Monday.
Six hours later, the motel supervisor found him lying lifeless on the bed in his underwear. He had a head wound while there were gray powder stains on his mouth and cheeks.
Masilang said an empty bottle of rat poison was found in the toilet which led them to believe that he could have been poisoned before he was hit in the head with a heavy object.
Also recovered beside the body was a letter which referred to the victim in unflattering terms.
Masilag said the letter writer, who had yet to be identified by the police, described Relova as a bad person without any sense of delicadeza in addition to being a miser and a lecher.
Based on the initial results of the police investigation, a check of the footage taken by one of the motel’s closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras showed a woman entering the victim’s room followed by a man an hour later.
The two came out of the room after a few minutes.
Masilang said they were waiting for the results of the autopsy conducted on the victim’s body to determine his cause of death.
“We still can’t give any conclusions about the motive for the killing until the investigation is complete,” he added.
According to him, they were coordinating with motel employees to obtain a copy of the CCTV footage which could help them identify the victim’s killers.

Pulis: “Maaaring napoison yung tao bago pinatay pero di pa, undergoing pa yung investigation.”

Would other sequence made sense? Pinatay muna bago ipoison? Sorry, pero…di ba obvious naman na poison muna bago patay? D:

Oh…The guy changed his shirt not to disguise himself to look different. That would be so stupid. He changed because he was assigned to poison the old man and rat poison would be all over his black shirt caused by any struggle or clumsiness.

Sana mahanap na sila at mabulok sa bilangguan. It would be a shame if they get away with this murder, lalo na’t na broadcast pa identity nila on national television. please update us on this case 🙂

I don’t know if the author of the article should have printed or hinted at the contents of the letter. Isn’t there a rule about respecting the deceased? Oh well.

Sana meron din tayong database of citizens with pictures ( parang sa CSI ) para dun nalang hanapin. Kasi kitang kita na yung mukha e. Come to think of it, they could search LTO’s database for any matches. Kahit mano manong search lang, i think giving justice to a person’s death is worth the effort.

dear kahit peke yung effects sa csi, there’s such thing as image processing (if im not mistaken with the terms) so it’s plausible.

I remember that not so long ago someone in the government proposed a national ID system? Such a database  would be the one you’re referring to, except that I think the proposal was said to be invasive of privacy, etc, etc. Anyhow I’m not sure but yes, there was talk of having a national ID before, similar to what other countries have.

CSI effects aside, National ID system would have been a good project if only given the chance.  We always look on the negative side (privacy issue, security etc, etc) kaya hindi nagbo-bloom ng mabuti ung project concept. I’m sure we have a lot of brilliant talents  who can help implement it propoerly. Sayang. Or, why not just use SSS/GSIS/LTO/NBI as a launching platform for a unified database since almost everyone has them? Singapore & US are using the same system kaya mas madaling maidentify ang mga perpetrators.  Of course, it’s a two edged sword–there will always be a downside but… Read more »

I was wondering if it was ok to show their faces on tv.

But then again, that does help locating these two fast.
